 Another Pleasant Surprise! September 1, 2012 By Richard F. Buckley (Jefferson Hills, PA) See All My Reviews "I will never understand how CD's as splendid as this can be produced at such bargain prices. I was missing the Tchaikovsky concerto from my collection, and I always enjoyed it, so I was anxious to add one, but I didn't know whose to select. I always admired Nathan Milstein growing up, but I was leery of buying this recording, especially at this LOW price. I suspected that the sound quality would leave much to be desired. How wrong I was! Not only was Milstein as stupendous as I remembered him, but the sound quality was as good as any CD in my collection. If I could give this disc more than five stars I would do so! I particularly recommend this CD to those young whippersnappers out there who have been lucky enough to grow up to the likes of Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Bell (How lucky they have been!), and think that no other violin virtuosos ever existed. At any price - never mind this mind-blowing basement bargain - this recording is a MUST ADD to any classical collection. Buy it! You'll be glad you did!" Report Abuse
